The Minard Editor Award

 

This award is dedicated to the memory of Lawrence Minard, former editor of Forbes Global, who had a long association with the Loeb Awards. An award winner in 1977, he became a preliminary judge in 1984 and joined the panel of final judges in 1987.

The award that bears his name recognizes the contributions of a business editor whose work does not receive a byline or whose face does not appear on the air for the work covered. The establishment of the award acknowledges an area of journalism that often goes unrecognized. In a posthumous tribute, Minard was the first recipient as part of the 2002 Loeb Awards. In 2003, it was given to Glenn Kramon, business editor of The New York Times; in 2004 to Michael Siconolfi, senior editor for financial investigative projects of The Wall Street Journal; in 2005 to Timothy K. Smith, assistant managing editor, Fortune; in 2006 to Ronald Henkoff, executive editor, Bloomberg News, and editor, Bloomberg Markets; in 2007 to Dan Kelly, news editor, Page One, The Wall Street Journal; in 2008 to Frank Comes, former assistant managing editor, BusinessWeek; in 2009 to Lawrence Ingrassia, business and financial editor, The New York Times; in 2010 to Alix Freedman, deputy managing editor, The Wall Street Journal; in 2011 to Hank Gilman, deputy managing editor, Fortune; in 2012 to Winnie O’Kelley, deputy business editor, The New York Times; in 2013 to Michael Williams, global enterprise editor, Reuters; in 2014 to John Brecher, executive editor for enterprise, Bloomberg News; in 2015 to Rebecca Blumenstein, deputy editor-in-chief, The Wall Street Journal; and in 2016 to Amy Stevens, Executive Editor of Professional News, Reuters.

Born Everett Lawrence Minard III, but known as Laury to his friends and colleagues, Minard began his 27-year career at Forbes as a reporter/researcher. He moved up the ranks to become managing editor of Forbes, a position he held for eight years, prior to joining Forbes Global as its founding editor in 1997.
